ABSTRACT

Authors, Attribution, and Integrity: Examining Moral Rights in the United States   [open pdf - 2MB]

From the Executive Summary: "Moral rights is not a topic that has generated significant policy focus within the United States until the past several years. Some may suggest this is a result of the United States' lack of strong protections in this area. Thus, the current Report represents the first comprehensive review of the United States' moral rights regime in three decades. It provides a much-needed and comprehensive overview of how the rights of attribution (the right to be credited as the author of one's work) and of integrity (the right to prevent prejudicial distortions of one's work) are protected in the United States through a patchwork of federal and state laws, as well as industry customs and other forms of private ordering. It also suggests some potential changes to the patchwork that could, if implemented, enhance moral rights protections for all types of authors."
